South of the Tombstones and past the Monument Cliff is another surf spot - Turtles. Described as “hollow, fast and powerful,” waves at the Turtles are typically anywhere from 1.5 m to 4m.
The Turtles Sanctuary zone is found in this area; please refer to the map to ensure you respect this conservation area.
What better way to enjoy nature’s naked beauty than go ‘au natural’ yourself! The clothing-optional Nature Bay can be found along a secluded stretch of shoreline. There is an unsealed access road that will get you there, or if you’re feeling like a stroll, you can walk along the beach, past the point from Gnaraloo Bay.

"We hear so much these days about the loss of free beaches as areas develop or local authorities decide that it is no longer appropriate. While other family clothing-optional beaches have become dominated by groups who don't have the best interests of naturism at heart. So it is really great to be able to spread the news about a new clothing-optional beach in Western Australia that is signposted and sanctioned by the landowner. What is more, beach access is easy with an upgraded access track and car park track, and the beach itself is as good as it gets."

Dive into a little history off the coast and check out the Magnolia wreck. In 1938, this leisure vessel got caught in a strong current and was swallowed by the sea.
If you’re ready for world-class waves, head out for the best-kept surfing secret on the West coast. The waves are no joke - the strong left barrel breaks over a sharp reef. Experienced surfers will love the challenge.
